This time a thank you card from me!

I know it's been a few weeks since WOYWW Pay It Forward, but family life and a holiday have limited my time to craft :( But, I finally made a thank you card for the lovely Pay It Forward gift that Angelfish (Fiona) sent to me:

Although I loved doing some water colouring whilst on holiday, it was nice to get to play with Promarkers again yesterday - and I used 10 different markers just to do this simple image! No wonder I found that watercolours were the less heavy weight solution for travelling!

The cute little bear hiding behind the bunch of flowers stamp is a Fizzy Moon Celebrations stamp, cut round with a Nestie, the brad in the middle of the lemon organza ribbon is from the same range and such a great match. The card is a cream scalloped square topped with papers from a Picnic in the Park paper stack that came free with a magazine. The little Thanks a Bunch sentiment was from my stash along with the pearls. Now I need to nip out and post it off, with a big apology for the delay in sending a card , even though I'd emailed and such it has to be a MUST to send a card saying thanks...that's what we're all about isn't it?!?!

As it's been a while since I entered any challenges I'd like to enter this card into Crafty Creations #125 Challenge - 'Thank you'.

I've also been playing with the images I water coloured on holiday but one in particular is destined for a birthday card for tomorrow and I know the recipient sometimes pops in here for a little look so I'll have to save that card for now!



  1. OMG! That Fizzy Moon stamp is just gorgeous and I LOVE the card you've made and the colours you used.

    Hugs, Sandra x

  2. This is gorgeous love the image and the background papers used..... stunning...:)Sandra H

  3. Cute little bear, love his cheeky face! Sounds like the aquamarkers have been relegated to the cupboard and promarkers have taken over!

  4. No way Karen - Aquamarkers are still great, especially when combined with Twinkling H2O's - see my next post due tomorrow! It's hard to beat the delicate effect of watercolours/Aqua Markers for some images :)) Di xx

  5. The average person wouldn't know that it takes that many coloured markers to colour your image. It's marvelous, super card!

  6. Beautiful...and I would have no idea how to use promarkers!!
    Ps..don't forget to enter your sweet pea card into the Sweetpea challenge challenge :D

  7. LOL didn't mean to type that twice..just woken up!

  8. I'm back! I think, I hope!
    I'm sure Fiona will love it! What an adorable image! Love how you colored him, he looks so soft and cuddly. Great papers and colors.

  9. A beautiful thank you card! Thanks so much for joining in with the challenge at Crafty Cardmakers this week.
